    Given the tone that DC has been trying to set with The New 52, there's a lot of potential for The Fury of Firestorm. That said, it's still potential. Ronnie and Jason aren't making much progress in their journeys as heroes, weapons or even as human beings, and that's frustrating for everybody. It's fun to talk about this book, but I feel like it should be even more fun just to dive in. This is as good of a starting point as any, and if Harris and Van Sciver focus this well on Ronnie's other half next month, The Fury of Firestorm might be the juggernaut it was always meant to become.

    But it is a good first step to righting this ship. It is interesting to observe how DC is dealing with its books that aren't working. 6 were outright cancelled, some are getting totally new creative teams (hi, Rob Liefeld), some are having pieces switched around (Travel Foreman and Jesus Saiz getting new, possibly ill-fitting assignments), and some are simply doubling down with the original plan, with some tweaks. "The Fury of Firstorm" is taking the fourth approach, giving Van Sciver more of the burden of the book. Whether that is a good thing or not is up for debate, but it is nice to see DC giving Van Sciver the chance to really get this book right. It isn't there yet, but all hope is not lost.

    Van Sciver's art is a nice reward for sticking with this title for this long, but "The Fury of Firestorm: the Nuclear Men" is quickly slipping from my "must-read" pile. Once upon a time, Ronnie Raymond was an introductory character for a generation of readers. Jason Rusch was conceived with the same thought in mind. Neither is anything more than whiny ciphers right now. I'm hoping Harris and Van Sciver can elicit the heroic ideals in these characters soon, before it's too late. Read Full Review

    It's not perfect, but it has a definite sense of direction, and it's already building momentum. It still may not be what old school Firestorm fans are expecting but this issue is a good step towards brighter days for ol' flame head. Read Full Review
